Wanted (desperately): a leader for the Conservative Party of Canada

Three prominent names have now dropped out of the running to replace the hapless Andrew Scheer as leader of the Conservative Party of Canada: Rona Ambrose, Jean Charest, and now Pierre Poilievre.
After the surprise announcements earlier this week by Ms. Ambrose and M. Charest, M. Poilievre was seen as the best, and perhaps only, challenger to the rather unpleasant Peter Mackay, who now looks to have a straight path the leadership. The only other challenger is Ontario MP Erin O'Toole, who is not expected to show very strongly in the vote.
But it's interesting to see just how little interest there is in being boss of the Canadian conservatives.
